To prepare the dough take a large bowl, put sugar and butter in it and knead. Then add egg, vanilla extract and baking powder. Continue kneading it while adding flour slowly. It will be ready when it does not stick in your hands. When it is ready put it into fridge and wait about 30 minutes.

In the mean time to prepare cream beat eggs and sugar in a pot. Then add flour and milk while beating it. Add starch and put in on medium heat. Stir it constantly until it become thick, then turn off the heat and add vanilla extract and butter and stir again.

Take the dough from the fridge and with the help of a roller make thin sheet and cut circular pieces out of it with a cup. Put circular pieces in the pan and make holes with a fork on the bottom of these pieces.

Bake them 350 F preheated oven about 20 minutes.

To prepare the sauce make fresh juice from 2 oranges, you will get 1 cup of orange juice. Put it in a pan, add starch and sugar. Then cook on low heat until it gets thick like a jell. 

When the pastries cooled down put cream on each of them.

Then put chopped fruit on top of the cream. You can use strawberry, kiwi, banana, pineapple... On very top put the sauce and keep them in the fridge about one hour. Your tartolets are ready, enjoy!
